give me a rock n roll slogan to scream
and put me on the cover of band magazine
do you sell more copies than melody maker?
do you sell more copies than melody maker?
god bless the music press
cos they made you belive that the strokes are the best

and no yr not bored of it yet
i can't belive yr not bored of it yet
yeah yoo've got a clique you've got alternachic

we dont like yr rekids just want to compete
and i want a haircut that says who i am
and i want some plimsoles that say who i am
and i want a tee shirt that says who i am
and i want a stachel that says who i am
and i want some turn-ups that say who i am
you might have my wardrobe you don't have my style

fuck your band
suck our band!

    General Commentit's basically insulting people who try to fit an image--just cause you have the wardrobe and you wear the logos don't mean you're awesome.

    General Commenti think this song is just about the band saying that they're different to everyone else:

    "God bless music press because they made you believe the strokes are the best"

    Also they are saying that even if they did get massively famous and everyone has things that represent Help she can't swim, they would still be more stylish/different/edgy.

    Seems like a song to just big themselves up, and why not when you're this awesome? love it!
